Book Blogger Hop 1/28/11 - 1/31/11

The Book Blogger Hop is a weekly Party for Book Bloggers hosted by Jennifer at her blog, Crazy-for-Books every Friday. The Hop is an opportunity for book bloggers to meet, connect, support each other and share their love of books and the written word. The Hop also offers a great opportunity for bloggers to discover other book blogs to read!

The Book Blog Hop lasts from Friday through Monday giving anyone who's interested plenty of time to join in! If you want to be a part of the fun, head on over to Crazy-for-Books, post your answer to the week's question on your blog and enter your blog on the Mr. Linky list. And then, start hopping to other blogs. This week's question is from Aliyah who blogs at
Des Absurdités:

"What book are you most looking forward to seeing published in 2011? Why are you anticipating that book?"

I'm not sure what book I'm most looking forward to being published especially since I don't know all of the books that will be published in 2011. I like different books for different reasons and depending on my mood, prefer one genre over another at a particular time. But anyway....two books that will be published around March of 2011 that I am looking forward to are:

Started Early, Took My Dog by Kate Atkinson; and

Both authors are English and write literary mysteries but they are very different kinds of books in style and substance. They both write fantastic books. If you haven't read anything by them, I highly recommend their books!


  1. Hello there, I am here from the Hop! I am not familiar with the soon to be published books you mention, but I hope you will enjoy them!

  2. Hi, just hopping on by and wishing you a wonderful weekend. I haven't read any Kate Atkinson for a long time, might have to look that one up.

  3. I love Jasper Fforde's books and I'm looking forward to this one as well. Yea!

    Have a good weekend!

  4. SUKO: Thank you for visiting! These are great authors so if you have a chance, give them a try!

    TC: Thank you! I hope you're having a great weekend! I haven't read many of her books but love what I have read of Atkinson's!

    KAY: GMTA! I hope we both enjoy it!

  5. Hello Amy. Thanks for hopping by. I have heard of these two authors, but have yet to read them. I will have to make it a point to read them this year.

  6. Thanks very much for stopping by my blog and following. A good friend of mine loves the Jasper Fforde books and keeps encouraging me to read them. I will have to give one a go this year. The pics of your feline friends are lovely! I have just one, she was from an abandoned litter too. Now I can't imagine life without her :)

  7. Hi
    Just hopping by and following through.
    I just added Atkinsons books to my TBR list, Fforde does my head in though :)
